CANTON, S.D. (AP) — A man charged with killing the 2-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson in South Dakota last fall could have his $750,000 bond revoked at a hearing next month.

Twenty-eight-year-old Joseph Patterson is facing second-degree murder, manslaughter and aggravated assault charges in the death of two-year-old Tyrese Robert Ruffin.

He was arrested early Wednesday on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, interference with emergency communication and injury to property, following accusations that he assaulted the boy’s mother this week.

State’s Attorney Tom Wollman is pushing for Patterson to forfeit the $750,000 cash bond his father paid last year.

Patterson appeared via video Thursday morning for the bond hearing. The Argus Leader reports that his attorney requested arguments to be heard next month. The hearing will resume on July 10th.
